Shiny GX, Lycanroc-GX from ‘GX Ultra Shiny;’ Worldwide Card Legality Coming!

The official Japanese Pokemon Card website has revealed several cards that will be included in GX Ultra Shiny! The set will release in Japan on November 2nd.

New cards revealed include “shiny” or “super” secret rares (SSRs) of Zygarde-GX, Rayquaza-GX, and Charizard-GX that feature the Pokemon’s shiny coloring over unique white backgrounds. One shiny GX will automatically be included in each booster box.

Presumably there will be a shiny rare for every GX shown on the set’s booster pack. Rayquaza-GX is #240/150, so there will at least be 90 secret rares. (Yikes!) They probably won’t have the usual real-world rarity of secret rares, as this would make it impossible to collect them all. As posted a while ago, each booster pack will include one GX, so this is probably how they’ll make it easier for fans to collect them all.

A new Lycanroc-GX (in its Dusk Form) and Wonder Labyrinth Prism Star Stadium were also revealed! Lycanroc-GX will be included in our February Team Up set. Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translations!

Lycanroc-GX – Fighting – HP200
Stage 1 – Evolves from Rockruff

Ability: Twilight Eye
When you play this card from your hand to evolve a Pokemon during your turn, you may discard an Energy from your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

[F][C][C] Accelerock: 120 damage.

[F] Radial Edge GX: 30x damage. This attack does 30 damage times the number of Energy cards in your opponent’s discard pile. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)

When your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Grass (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2


Wonder Labyrinth Prism Star – Trainer
Stadium

You can’t have more than 1 Prism Star card with the same name in your deck. If a Prism Star card would go to the discard pile, put it in the Lost Zone instead.

Each player’s Pokemon (excluding [Y] Pokemon) pays [C] more to use its attacks.

As long as this Stadium is in play, whenever a player uses an Item or Supporter card from their hand, prevent all effects of those cards done to this Stadium.

This card stays in play when you play it. Discard this card if another Stadium card comes into play. If another card with the same name is in play, you can’t play this card.

The rest of the revealed cards are straight-up reprints of earlier cards or alternate art versions that we’ve already received in America. We know these aren’t the only GX that will be in the set, as shiny Espeon-GX, Ho-Oh-GX, Stakataka-GX, and more are on the booster pack.

The reprinted cards use the “A” or “B” from their original sets, confirming the theory that this will be the way Japan specifies which cards will be legal in the future. This also means Japan and America will soon have synced legalities!

As posted a while ago, GX Ultra Shiny will also feature new full art versions of Cynthia and Guzma. There will also be new Supporter cards for Subway Bosses Ingo & Emmet as well as Battle Chatelaine.

    These look amazing. Rayqauza GX shiny is 240/150, which is insane. I can't imagine what the set we get these in will be like for secret rares, but I hope we get thebshiny pokemon somehow, and since there's is going to be so many, I hope they are not super hard to get,

    Lycanroc seems pretty decent!

    They're REALLY trying to outdo themselves with massive sets this year it seems...

    "each booster will include one GX" - why would anyone buy a booster from another set then? (where its about 1 GX in four packs.) And that set has all of the top GXs.

    I'm guessing that will be the case in Japan only, where they do that sometimes. To collect this set from boosters in Europe/US will be totally bonkers. Not gonna try that, but I do like that they finally seem to abandon the 'GX/FA/Rainbow' system that was already old by the time the second Sun & Moon set rolled along. This set is gonna cost me some money.

    “Spits out water”! Wow those are a lot of SR! I already know that shiny full art charizard is most likely gonna be worth more than the RR! Really want the lycanroc GX & zoroark GX shinies though :p:rolleyes:

    If Gardy were relevant, that stadium would be nuts. As it stands, Sylveon loves it. Lycanroc dusk mill might be fun, especially with the stadium. Not too excited about shinies, it's just more money for a shinier card that you can get $50 cheaper in regular art. (Lookin at you, Lele)

    If we get this set in English, it will be expensive af. It's full of competitive cards, so it's going to be hard to get my hands on any packs at all!

    Hello :D Could you please explain why Sylveon 'loves it'? I want to make a Sylveon deck, but I'm still learning and I don't see why this card would be so useful for her.

    Oh crap now I really want to get a booster box for this. I hope there's still a box when I visit there. The shiny Charizard and Zygarde looks amazing.

    The stadium has the effect that opponents will have to pay one energy more for their attacks. Sylveon usually plays defensive and the higher energy requirement in combination with energy hate cards can stop opponents from spamming cheap attacks.


    So here is my opinion on the new revealed information:

    - The three shinies
    If they ever release here especially Rayquaza and Charizard will be very expensive cards. I really love the design of Rayquaza and Charizard, Zygarde is a Pokémon that in my opinion looks awful as a shiny.

    - Lycanroc GX is a good card with lower HP than the Bloodthirsty Eyes but a better regular attack. The ability is not bad but I think Bloodthirsty Eyes is better. We'll see if it will be played.

    - Wonder Labyrinth Prism Star is a nice supporting stadium for Sylveon and also for Gardy. It isn't that great though but Sylveon was lacking a good stadium.

    So if A and B on those cards suggest their legality, it means that rotation next year will most likely be Ultra Prism on? So the first four main sets and the Shining Legends miniset will rotate?

    These shinies in English will be impossible to get and that Zard will be super expensive
